Aussies sink results at the Junior Pan Pacific Games in nero

Australian blueseventy nero swimskins fans recently came out on top at the Junior Pan Pacific Games in Guam, Jan 09, with amazing results.

Ryan Nepolean (pictured above just after one race) ended up with 4 Gold and one Bronze and a time in the 800m free that makes it onto the 'all time fastest top 8 ' list of any Australian in history, touching the wall in 7:58.66! In the 400m free he also claimed a meet record of 3:51.12 and a gold medal win.

Amy Smith (above, seen stepping onto the side of the pool) just missed out winning the 200m fly behind USA swimmer Camille Adams in 2:10.55 and was part of the Australian Bronze winnning team in the 4 x 100m medley relay. USA and Canada came 1st and 2nd respectively.

Ned McKendry is only 16 and ended up with a silver behind Ryan in the 400m freestyle clocking a 3:54.70 and third in the 800m freestyle in a time of 8:07.90.That's not too bad considering this was the first time Ned had given this event a go.

I know some of the top open water swimmers were also wearing a nero 10k for the open water race. Great job Blueseventy!
